Cochin Shipyard to build giant dredger for DCI

The state-run Cochin Shipyard has announced a plan to build a high capacity dredger for Dredging Corporation of India (DCI), worth as much as ₹800 crore ($110 million), with technology and design support from Royal IHC.

The new dredger will have a hopper capacity of 12,000 cubic meters.

This TSHD is going to be the first dredger to be built by Cochin Shipyard at its yard in Cochin following a memorandum of understanding (MoU) signed with IHC in November last year for collaboration on technology and design for high capacity, complex dredgers.
